Music Break - A Few More Old Favorites

To continue where I left off last month, here are some more old favorites of mine, some well-known, some not so much.

Aerosmith's 1974 Toys In the Attic album featured the hits Walk This Way and Sweet Emotion, but the cut I liked the most was Adam's Apple.

In 1980, Joe Walsh made his contribution to the soundtrack of Urban Cowboy with All Night Long.

Walsh had recently joined the Eagles, whose The Long Run album included a tribute to college fraternities, The Greeks Don't Want No Freaks, which included backing vocals by the band's road crew, known as the Monstertones, and by Jimmy Buffett.

Way back in the early 1970's, one of my brothers bought this single, Draggin' The Line by Tommy James.  This was a solo effort, done without his group The Shondells.  Ron Dante, who sang the lead vocal on Sugar Sugar by The Archies, sings some backing vocals.

To finish, I would be remiss not to include a tribute to keyboardist Ray Manzarek of the Doors, who passed away earlier today.  In Love Her Madly, Manzarek plays both piano and his trademark spooky-sounding organ.
